Illawarra Hawks v New Zealand BreakersBuy Tickets
Don't miss the Hawks last home game of the season.
the NBL announced that Round 18 will be dedicated to celebrating Indigenous culture.
The jersey design was again created by local Indigenous artist Harry Pitt who took inspiration from three of local artist Auntie Trish’s paintings and shoe designs.
Pitt stated, “The Hawks Indigenous Jersey for 2020 tells the story of a journey; a journey in which the players lift the name of Hawks with pride in themselves and their community.”
The design mixes Torres Strait and Aboriginal design elements. The changing flow of the sea as travellers strive to complete their journey is combined with colours inspired by Auntie Trish’s paintings. The blue pattern represents the oceans, rivers and sacred water holes in the Illawarra. The sides of the jersey refer to our knowledge holders (elders) from all four corners of mother earth. The dots of ochre are used for our traditional ceremonies, dance and songs.
The Whale is significant to the communities of the Illawarra and South Coast as the whales migrated up and down the coast passing all of the local communities that make up the Yuin Nation.
The blue colouring and the orange lines are taken from a shoe design gifted to the club by Aunty Trish. The shoes were split between the players and the coaching staff to symbolize that one cannot move without the other.
